IUCN Small grants for Wetlands Programme : The next deadlines for submitting proposals will be 1 September 2004
Thursday 29 April 2004

The Netherlands Committee for IUCN (IUCN is The World Conservation Union) administers a small grants programme for projects aimed at the conservation and sustainable management of wetlands. Funds managed by the Small grants for Wetlands Programme (SWP) are provided by the Government of the Netherlands.

The Netherlands is a contracting party to both the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the Convention on Wetlands of International Importance especially as waterfowl habitat (Ramsar Convention). Therefore projects that are funded by SWP should be in line with these conventions. In particular, the central objective of the Netherlands policy on wetlands is wise use. Wise use is defined within the framework of the Ramsar Convention as "the sustainable utilisation of wetland resources for the benefit of mankind in a way that is compatible with the maintenance of the natural properties of the wetland system".

SWP funds are especially meant to support projects in the field of conservation and sustainable management of wetlands, set up and implemented by non-governmental, local organisations (NGOs). The ecosystem approach defined by the Convention on Biological Diversity should be the strategic framework for project implementation.

SWP has drafted criteria for the selection of projects to be funded, and a format for project proposals. Project proposals must be prepared according to this format and projects must comply with these criteria. Furthermore, the programme will strive for a balanced allocation of funds between regions and priority themes. The list of countries in which NGO projects may be funded by SWP has been modified as compared to the period September 2000 to December 2003.

For examples of projects that have been funded by the SWP, please see Funded Projects.

The maximum amount that can be granted to a project (all phases included) is still Euro 85.000. Projects that have already been supported in the earlier phase can submit a second proposal but the maximum total amount (all phases included) is still Euro 85.000.
